No, No, And Hell No!

I’m not one for conspiracy theories. Maybe there was somebody on the grassy knoll when JFK got shot, and maybe not. Maybe the government really is hiding all kinds of information about UFOs from us. But if they are, I don’t really care. And maybe the last election was rigged, or the one before that, […]

In the wake of yesterday’s blog about the gentleman who was uncomfortable in venturing off interstate highways, I got to thinking about living and traveling in an RV and how different the RV lifestyle can be among different fulltimers and snowbirds. We know many RVers who enjoy seeking out new places to visit and explore […]

We had a lot to get done yesterday, and accomplished very little of it. Some days are just like that, I guess. We had quite a bit of stuff that we had been carrying around in the van that we decided had to go away, so I loaded it into the Explorer to drop off […]

Well, it took a while, some trial and error, and my blood pressure was in the stratosphere for a couple of days, but it was worth it. Well, it was worth it to me. Miss Terry had to live with the grouchy bear I become when I get too stressed out from dealing with thieves […]

I have had a very frustrating couple of days, and if I had any hair left, I’d probably be pulling it out about now. Our Ford van has 163,000 miles on the odometer, not counting many thousands more being towed behind our motorhome, and behind our bus conversion before that. It’s reached the point where […]

The time comes for all fulltimers when illness, advancing age, changing interests, family needs, or some other reason causes us to make the decision to hang up the keys. Some fulltime RVers enter the lifestyle knowing that they will only be traveling for a certain amount of time before they settle down, while others hope […]

Fortunately, most RVers we know are pretty mellow people who, aside from a heightened sense of adventure and a love for seeing what’s over the next hill and around the next bend in the road, are pretty much like anybody else you’d encounter anywhere. Most RVers, especially fulltimers, seem to be pretty tolerant people, and […]

There is a phenomenon that takes place this time of year that has mystified me ever since we became fulltime RVers over ten years ago, and that is getting income taxes filed. No, I understand the process. What confuses me is why people would leave a place like sunny Arizona and return to cold states […]

After reading the Thought For The Day in yesterday’s blog (When you go into court, your fate is in the hands of twelve people who aren’t smart enough to get out of jury duty), two different wannabe fulltimers e-mailed me to ask how fulltimers handle civic obligations such as voting and jury duty. Do they […]

Quite a few RVs have left Rainbow Plantation here in Summerdale, Alabama as people head off for the holidays. We have talked to people who are going as far north as Louisville and as far west as California to be with family and friends. Others, like us, are hunkering down in a comfortable RV park […]
